In Your Room - Poem by Ravi Upadhye

A whiff of fresh scent
Hanging in the air,
Mesmerizing, haunting and –yes;
Its familiar

Scent of youth,
Scent of childhood,
Wafting in disguise,
Asking us
Guess who-guess who

Like tunes of once oft heard melodies,
Like familiar signs of once oft trodden terrains,
Like skipped lines of a once familiar song
Like taste of wonderful summer wine and sunshine,
In a harsh winter

Rushing memories of a celebration just getting over,
Lingering taste of savored moments,
Memories of songs playing in wee hours of night
Charging the present moments with a new energy

Cherishing those wonderful days and nights,
Longing and waiting for the days to return
All over again
To fill our mundane existence
With dance and song; love and affection
